A dirt road most likely wont cause it if you can count on one hand how many times you drove it on them............did you hit any bad potholes while on said roads?

does it happen generally, or when you hit something fairly hard?

do any of the gague needles flutter when you hit something like a speed bump or pothole?

naw it sounds like its from under the whole dash. its just when you hit big bumps or on a dirt road you can hear a rattle behind the dash. i talked to a tech and said some ac or other parts can come loose when on to much bumpy roads. any one have any ideas.?

Hey, not sure if this helps but I had to have my steering column replaced.... I have a 08 coupe ls only had the car for 4 months so I took it to the dealer with a complaint of a slight rattle/vibration in the front end/dash area.

Nova Scotia Driving

Thats what driving in Nova Scotia will get you....

I'm from CB and the roads are SHITE!

What I have is a "clunk" noise when I drive over pot holes. (08 Cobalt LT)

Its esp. loud when driving over a speed bump at a 45 degree angle.


i'm going to bring up your steering column issue next time i'm by Chev.

Sounds like your susp. is bottoming out, check to see if there are wear marks on the bumpstop
